What is Social Bookmarking?
Social bookmarking sites are a way to store your favorite links online.
Hence the word 'Social'! It has become very popular, as it's a great way for people to find new websites that have been hiding in somewhere remote.
For business owners, social bookmarking sites are an excellent way of driving traffic to your website or blog.
More people are turning to them to find the resources they are looking for.
Once you add your sites and other people start to find them and like them, they will add some or all of your links to their list, and this can lead to big traffic.
Social bookmarking sites are very simple to use. All you need to do is register and start adding your favorite links to your list.
The first sites you add to your bookmarks will be all your web pages and blog posts.
Next leverage these sites resources to the maximum by adding web pages and blogs of your interest.
When you have added a good selection of web pages and blogs to your bookmarks, you might want to consider forming a bookmarking network, perhaps via the contacts you have made from social networking.
A bookmarking network is a group of 10 or so people who decide to collaborate on driving traffic by bookmarking each other's websites using the top social networking sites.
This will increase the chances of other people finding your sites and adding your sites to their own lists.
Soon, you'll have lots of people checking out your site, joining your mailing list, buying products from you and doing business with you.
